Floor prep question

Hello. I have a question on prepping a concrete floor for ceramic tile. The concrete is mostly bare but around the perimeter of the room i had sprayed the base boards with semi gloss paint and got quite a bit of overspray on the concrete about 6 inches out from the baseboards. Can i just add a bonding agent to the thinset or am i going to have to get up ALL the paint from the concrete first? Thanx for any input. Also, the paint is not scraping off the concrete very easily

You should use a modified thin set...it will stick to the over spray. If you could coarse sand the paint a bit to remove the gloss, it would be a good idea...other than that....the 6 inchs shouldn't be a problem.
